World agriculture: towards 2010. A FAO study

This book is a revised and somewhat expanded version of the official FAO document Agriculture: Toward 2010 prepared in 1992 and early 1993 for, and considered by, the Twenty-Seventh Session of the FAO Conference in November 1993. It is the latest forward assessment by FAO of possible future developments in world food and agriculture, including the crops, livestock, forestry and fisheries sectors. The assessment is no mere exercise in world food demand and supply projections but rather the product of multidisciplinary work covering the many technical, socioeconomic and policy facts of food and agriculture. The focus is on food security, natural resources and sustainability. The book contains the most comprehensive evaluation of the agricultural potential of the land resources of the developing countries available anywhere.
